One of the principal concepts of the Basic Act on Sport is to promote the independent and active participation of disabled people in sports. The Sport Basic Plan outlines measures to enhance the nation’s sport environment to enable a diverse range of people regardless of their disabilities to participate in sport.

From the standpoint of sports promotion, advancing sport related measures for people with disabilities was transferred from the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare to MEXT in 2014. The JSA will continue to promote sport policies for people with disabilities.
